Our weekend was wonderful. How about yours?
We celebrated the 4th of July with my grandparents, which is always fun!! We ate way too much food and enjoyed each other’s company.
Saturday, the 5th, was my little brother Jon’s first birthday. Here is an excert from my Mom’s blog, posted on his birthday:
“This morning, we let him open one of his gifts from his papa and I:
We also let him look at all the lovely cards from his siblings:
Isn’t he cute?
Now we are baking his birthday cake. The baking and decorating will take most of today.
We have the cake all mixed up:
